Dr. Northrup sent out a cautionary message about the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine to her entire e-community in November 2006 when the Gardasil vaccine was approved and being promoted to all girls and young women as a way to help prevent cervical cancer.

But when an entire population has been led to believe that finding and taking the right drug for every ill is the Holy Grail of healthcare, we have a problem—especially since most health conditions respond so beautifully to holistic treatments. Meanwhile, every now and then, our attention is very cleverly turned away from the treatments we’re led to trust without question (drugs) so as to stop us from doing the things that actually contribute to health—like taking vitamins.
